Nexa halts Cerro Lindo production

Nexa Resources said that production at its Cerro Lindo mine in Peru is temporarily suspended due to the mine’s access road being illegally blocked by a small group of protestors.

The miner said that there has been no material impact on Cerro Lindo’s production to date and it does not expect a change to the 2021 production guidance. Activities at Cerro Lindo will be limited to critical operations with a minimum workforce to ensure proper maintenance.

Nexa said it “remains committed to the social development of its host communities and continues to pursue an active dialogue with the local community and authorities for a peaceful resolution of this situation.”

Cerro Lindo is a polymetallic underground mine located in the Chincha Province, approximately 268 kilometers southeast of Lima and 60 km from the coast.
